Explosives, firearms found in Zlín building

The police have found firearms and explosives in a building in Zlín owned by the father of Radek Březina, the alleged head of a Czech bootleg liquor mafia, a prosecutor said on Friday. The police revealed no details of what was discovered but said the weapons will be analysed to see if they had been used in committing crimes. Mr. Březina along with his brother Tomáš and another man were charged last year with tax evasion worth 500 million crowns. The investigators believe he controlled much of the country’s black market in alcohol.
